I have merged your topics


I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

It doesn’t answer because it’s inside the other if statement, make sure to use the correct indentation for your code, otherwise you get the wrong logic flow

thank you for help, i fix it
